2.3.1 (2023-11-02)

  • Packaging improvements.
    • Add build script that pregenerates shell completion files (behind the shell_completion feature).
    • Add man page.

2.3.0 (2023-10-31)

  • Support loading key configuration values from environment variables.
    • The configuration file may now be absent if the required values can be loaded from the environment.
    • The ListenBrainz Token can be set using the LISTENBRAINZ_TOKEN variable. This is the only required configuration value.
    • Support the MPD_HOST and MPD_PORT environment variables as used by other MPD tools like mpc. If these are not specified and the configuration file does not configure the MPD address either, the default address localhost:6600 is assumed.

2.2.0 (2023-07-09)

  • Implement ListenBrainz feedback, giving you the ability to mark recordings as "Loved" or "Hated" (#10, requested by oovaga).
    • Accessible by sending messages to the listenbrainz_feedback MPD client-to-client channel.
    • As a user, you can use the mpc command-line tool like mpc sendmessage listenbrainz_feedback love
    • Alternatively, you can use the --send-feedback option
  • Fix a bug that prevented a "Now Playing" notification being sent for the first track after starting playback.

2.1.0 (2023-03-12)

  • Remember Listens that failed to submit and attempt to submit them again later until they are accepted.
    • Uses an SQLite database as a cache
    • Can be disabled in the configuration if not wanted
  • Add the ability to provide the login token as well as the MPD password as separate files in the configuration (#9, thanks to Scrumplex).
  • The login token is no longer checked immediately on startup.
    • This avoids some issues with the service starting and failing before the network is fully configured
    • Also mitigated by increasing the delay between restart attempts in the provided .service file (#8, thanks to 11xx)
  • No longer exit with an error status if the server closes the connection cleanly.

2.0.2 (2023-02-03)

  • Fix listening to the same song twice in a row not generating listen events (#7, thanks to DeeUnderscore).

2.0.1 (2023-01-07)

  • Validate MusicBrainz Identifiers before submission, exclude them if invalid (#6, thanks to animakarkia).

2.0.0 (2022-08-27)

  • Restructure configuration file. All keys are now grouped into sections.
  • The path to the configuration file can now be overriden with an option (--config) instead of a positional parameter.
